Miller was responsible for some of country music’s biggest hits, including Dang Me and King of the Road.
He also tested his luck in lots of areas like acting in Hollywood and even wrote a Tony-winning score.
It has been more than 25 years since he passed away, but Miller is still remembered by many artists and fans alike.
As for Half A Mind, Lynn’s version has recently been released on Soundcloud.
The song is about being in a relationship where one person is in a big dilemma, needing to end the relationship but unable to leave everything behind easily.
Perhaps the most relatable line from the whole song is this, ‘I’ve got half a mind to leave you, but only half the heart to go.’
Since it was released, the song has struck many hearts and have become such a big part of countless relationships.
Lynn first recorded by 1965 and was included in her Songs From My Heart LP. After a year, soul singer Joe Tex cut the song. Other musicians who also cut it were Jean Shepard, Goldie Hill, and Roy Drusky.
